Luzon and Visayas grids will be placed today, Thursday, April 25, under yellow alert for several hours by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

This is because there are over 40 power plants that are unavailable.

A yellow alert, according to the NGCP, is issued “when the operating margin is insufficient to meet the transmission grid’s contingency requirement.”
